"I always was an early-morning or late-night writer. Early morning was my favorite; late night was because you had a deadline. And at four in the morning, you make up some of your most absurd jokes" - Joss Whedon
"Is this funny, or is this 3am funny?" - Frequently used question during 48HFP writing process.
With our final 48 Hour Film of the year looming over us on Friday, we're starting to hit that same mixture of excitement and nerves that we get everytime. This time maybe even more so. Portland, ME is a new 48HFP for us to be participating in; over the past 6 years we've done Boston, NH and Providence every year... but never Portland. Therefore, we have no idea what we're getting into. On top of that we're coming off of a pretty successful film making season. We're especially proud of the work with did this year with How to Write a Love Song as well as Time is the New Travel. We also took a chance with Waiting as our first improvised movie; and had decent success with it, coming in second at the NH 48HFP.
With Portland, we hope to finish off our season strong, with an increasing number of actors and actresses in our team, as well as some familiar faces from our early years. More and more it seems Mark and Kyp are stepping behind the camera to focus on telling the story rather than acting it out. Here's to one more weekend of madness, creativity, and sleepiness.
